My 2nd Bern Helmet
5 months back, I blogged about a helmet I bought, the Bern Brentwood. Although I ended up owning one in black, I really preferred one in white.
Well, after I damaged the inside of my black Bern Brentwood during my Vietnam trip, it gave me a reason to buy the white helmet I always wanted to have. I went back to Bike Town Cyclery in Pasong Tamo, but they were no longer in stock. Then I heard that Republic clothing store, just across the road, were selling Bern products. When I went there, they did have them available. Macon, Watts and Brentwood models. But none in the model and color I want. I read in a forum that Papi's Bike Shop in Quezon City had 'em, but that place is out of the way.
Then I learned my dad was going to the US. So I did the next best thing: I bought my helmet on-line and had it delivered to my sister's address for my dad to bring back here in the Philippines! (I got a glossy white Bern Brentwood helmet from Altrec.com for $70.00)
